Public WiFi in Cambridgeshire

Connecting Cambridgeshire is working to improve and extend free Public WiFi in Cambridge and surrounding areas as part of the programme to improve connectivity across the county.

Our partnership of local councils is building upon existing provision to develop a wider WiFi network that is free, simple to use and gives people easy access to the services they need.

The public building WiFi network has been developed with funding from the Government’s Super Connected Cities scheme, overseen by Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK).

We are also working with the University of Cambridge to provide public WiFi in open spaces and streets around central Cambridge, as part of their plans to extend existing education networks for students, staff and visitors.

The growing Public Access WiFi network involves:

  • Rolling out a free CambWifi network in over 100 public buildings in and around Cambridge including Park and Ride sites, libraries, council offices, children’s centres, sheltered housing, leisure facilities and community hubs.
  • Offering free WiFi in open spaces and streets around central Cambridge through The Cloud in conjunction with the University of Cambridge – building upon more than 20 WiFi access points launched in time for the Tour de France in July 2014.
  • Exploring opportunities to make public WiFi more widely available in other public and community buildings across Cambridgeshire.
